Sara Louise’s Keto French Bread

A Tasty and healthy low carb French bread recipe for Keto Dieters

Here is a tasty keto French bread recipe from Sara. Now many keto dieters mistakenly believe that French bread is off limits while following a low carb ketogenic diet. Why, well simply because bread is associated with a high carb count. So normally eating regular bread as part of your daily intake would make it much harder to cut carbs overall.


Which is why many keto dieters shy away from breads and an understandable reason why lots of keto beginners often think that any bread is not allowed. Most of the time just tweaking an established recipe such as this keto French bread recipe is the real answer and you are back in business. Note this keto French bread recipe requires at least 6 eggs to make. I recommend free range eggs.

So the good news is that bread does not have to be off the menu at all while pursuing a keto healthy lifestyle. Yes you do have to make some adjustments on account of carb control. So while that wholemeal loaf from Walmart is still not the best choice for bread lovers. Some quick recipe research will tell you that there are scores of yummy keto bread recipes, these Hawaiian sweet bread rolls for example and we have several others on our site.

    1. I did the same thing, even added a couple more tablespoons of almond flour to get it to go into a dough, but no ! Am going to cook it now and see what happens!

  1. I have the same problem as Alana. The mix is more of a batter than a soft dough, even after standing.
    Are the quantities of all the ingredients definitely correct?

  2. Please fix this recipe. My dough was also very runny. Something must be off and I would live to bake some bread.

    1. I’ve made it a couple of times….best recipe I have found so far. I substituted 4 of the eggs for egg whites as I dint like when keto breads taste too eggie. I add a little more psyllium husk but I bake in a loaf pan. Turns out awesome!

  3. Dear Sarah After you throw the ice cubes in do you leave the oven door open and continue baking or do you just throw them In and shut the door

  4. I just love this French bread, it’s the best bread I’ve had since I’ve been on Keto in 2 years. I divide it up in to jumbo muffin tins and make fresh rolls. They were so good my kids were asking me about them. Thank you so much for a fantastic recipe. Debbie

  5. Guess it’s the almond flour fault…whenever i see super fine almond flour that means it needs to be de-oiled ,so it has the consistency of real flour..
    I haven’t tried the recipe yet but most of the times that is the problem that makes runny doughs.

  6. I have made this twice. Dough, following original recipe, was a bit loose. In the processor I slowly added coconut flour until it formed a firmer dough. Used the coconut as addition instead of almond because it absorbs more liquid. I also added a bit of kosher salt to the mixture. After pulling from the oven, brushed the loaves with ghee…..added a ton of flavor!

  7. Hello Sara
    Read the recipe and I was thinking of using it,
    but after reading the reviews don’t know if I should.
    Also I’m curious about why can’t we see your answers
    To the comments and questions in the reviews.

  8. I agree. This was more of a batter. And, it does not appear to even look like the texture of the french bread in the picture. It looks more like a cornbread texture. Bummer!!!

  9. I have made this recipe twice and both times I haven’t been able to get it to rise. I thought it was due to my baking powder being out of date but I tried it this time with fresh baking powder and ended up with the same results. Also my “dough” came out more like a batter so I added a more psyllium and almond flour until it became more dough like. I don’t know what I am doing wrong with this recipe and would greatly appreciate any help or pointers on how to get this right.

  10. Tried this twice. Could not get it to look like the pictures. First time formed two loaves. They spread, but I was able to slice they horizontally and use for sandwiches that way. Second time I used a bun mold. Second time also added more flour. Came out better. Made great hamburger buns. Also, weighing the flour is definitely the key. The buns also toast well after slicing. Good for poached eggs.

    Will keep using.

  11. Thank you all for your comments, I can see that some people have made this keto french bread recipe just fine where some of you found it a little runny. So I’ll be trying to replicate some of the baking issues and tweak a few things going forward just in case also. Thanks for trying my recipes everybody!! xx

  12. Have the same issues as everybody else, too runny. Added more almond and coconut flower. It’s baking right now, let’s see how it comes out?

  13. Guys, you have to mix the eggs and softcheese a while til the mixture gets really creamy and volumes up, then add butter and the rest. Dough is perfect for shaping it with your hands ?? but for me the taste is way too sweet, have to try with other flours to get it right ?? but thanks for the base receipe ?

  14. Came out like pancake batter…I added 3 tbs oat fiber, 3 tbs vital wheat gluten, 3 more tbs psyllium husks amd a half scoop whey protein isolate…and a bit of salt…finally doughed up kinda…nat a good recipe as written…sorry

  15. I’ve made this twice. The first time, I mixed everything by hand. It turned out okay, but I had to make lots of modifications like others. The second time, I used a food processor, mixed everything for a full five minutes, and waited the full 12 minutes before placing in the baguette pans. It was far more successful and delicious!
